Go to http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/10352778/ to see an article and video about allergies on MSNBC.

Good points are made, especially with regards to the importance of letting people know about your allergies.

I read the article, and watched the video. I was surprised to see that in the article they mention "genetically modified produce", as a possible cause of allergic reactions.

It was a good article, and I printed up a page of "Food Allergy Buddy" cards for Aaron to use. We do not go to anything but franchised restaurants with standardized food, and sushi places, but I liked the cards a lot. What I would like to see is a course or a module in "Food Safe" course that people who work in restaurants have to take, to educate them about fook allergies, and then the establishment have a card in the window to show that the people working there have the knowledge to deal with food allergies.

Pamela Lee, the Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association started a project that sounds exactly as you described that was back in 2002 (I think). It never got off the ground.
I'm not sure why.

This is what I find on there website now.
